Mercedes introduced the W123 model as a four-door sedan in 1976 at the Geneva Motor Show. The following year, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz made history: The brand presented its first station wagon model, the W123 T model. The name came from the words Tourism und Transport.
Compared to the W123’s predecessor, the W114 series, the W123 was progressive, with Mercedes introducing a long list of new features to family car class during W123 production years 1976–1984, from the modern diesel engines and four speed automatic gearboxes to estate models self-levelling rear suspension, turbochargers and airbags.
The brightest top models of the Mercedes’s large family car were equipped with a big, new 5-cylinder diesel engine and an automatic transmission, such as this one from Stuttgart. The engine became a legend, which is still considered an incomparable mileage sinker thanks to its reliability.
This 1979 300TD Kombi was brought to Finland in 1987. The car has been taken very good care of and its body has been restored and repainted in the original pastel green shade. The interior is confusingly tidy, intact and original. There are original additional seats in the trunk, the car is an original 7-seater.
The engine and gearbox work together seamlessly, as the German engineer has it planned. The control devices work precisely and the doors and hatches close like in a bank vault, including the manually operated sunroof.
The car is registered as a historic vehicle and the inspection is valid until the end of June 2025.
A great classic for the whole family, ready to drive and enjoy.
